Another flashback to that fateful day, ten years ago…

I don’t even remember where I originally got this from, but I’ve kept it since shortly after it was broadcast. Now, I’m not a big Howard Stern fan, and I assume most of you aren’t, either. As with Jazz’s post with Jon Stewart’s touching speech, it truly is startling how attitudes have transformed in a mere decade. However, I think a look back at how people felt right after the towers were hit is important. Going back, and hearing the anger…the uncompromising demands for justice and retribution…the unbridled surge of love for country, and against the evil that attacked us that day…it’s therapeutic. It reminds us that, under the right circumstances…barriers vanish, if only for a brief moment. I’d like to think that if another tragedy like this were to occur, that it would summon up the same sensations that are expressed by Stern and other people in this broadcast, and that we’d once again feel that same camaraderie that we experienced not so very long ago.
Content warning: this is Howard Stern. There’s nothing particularly offensive in this broadcast, apart from Robin letting the “f” word slip once. Additionally, Paul Krugman and other sniveling cowardly slime might be offended at the sheer amount of warmongering neoconservative islamophobic nationalistic dialogue that is thrown around in this broadcast. As for everyone else…prepare to hear sentiments and attitudes that seem to have been lost to history. Intense support for Israel, condemnation of Palestine, speculation that it was Iraq, calls to get behind the president and hopes that he levels countries throughout the world, and even demands that we take their oil for ourselves. What a difference a decade makes.
